I give this book to everyone I know. It's the cutest thing ever.
If you are not familiar with Sandra Boynton, then I feel sorry for you. Go out and get familiar with her immediately, especially if you have children, know children or have ever been a child.
Boynton's writing is sweet, funny and positively entertaining all at the same time. Philadelphia chickens is a collection of Boynton's writings, some published alone in board books. The really cool part is that the book comes with a CD, and all the songs are set to music. Some known musicians as well as others sing on the CD, and the tunes are catchy and fun. Kids and adults will go crazy over this music/book combo.
The songs include the title track, "Philadelphia Chickens, " "Cows" and my favorite, "Snuggle Puppy." You will recognize the voices of the Bacon Brothers, Patti LuPone, Eric Stoltz, Meryl Streep and other performers.
